, house or senate that continues to play the race card. hank johnson says the n.r.a. opposes barack obama's new gun laws and executive power and says, first of all, he's black and as a black person, being the president of the united states, well, that's something they still cannot get over. why does this keep coming up in washington? >> well, the interesting thing is, one of the most famous gun cases of the last few years is the mcdonald case in chicago. and it's an african-american gentleman defending himself and wanting to have a gun to defend himself, and the government of chicago trying to prevent that from happening. and the supreme court said, the second amendment does apply to cities, that even cities like chicago cannot on their own overturn the second amendment, but this was in defense of an african-american man who wanted to own a gun to defend himself and his family. so, i don't think there's anything racist about this. clarence thomas, an african-american, one of our most famous justices, also has written in many of the early cases where whitelaw is trying to take away guns fr
they have barack obama's speech before the senate when bush was president. and how he was going to vote against raising the debt ceiling and he made this beautiful speech, all of which is perfectly correct. it just now he is on the opposite side of the equation. it is a silly argument. bill: he went on to explain as he has see things differently as senator than president in the white house. >> of course you do. >> some conservatives argue this. i want to get your feeling on this. focus on the overspending. don't focus on the long-term debt. when you focus on the debt ceiling it makes the message more muddled and more difficult. do you agree a with that? >> that's correct. i really do. i think the debt ceiling is a beautiful tool to get the president and congress to agree and to compromise and work things out and to bring down spending. i think that is right. it shouldn't be used to close down the country. that is just another tool, another political compromise in negotiations and it is a beautiful tool for that to bring the two sides together to bring out something that is good for all
and require background checks on anyone who buys bullets. senator, your reaction as the senator for connecticut to president obama's very bold and ambitious plans today for new gun legislation. >> it is a sweeping set of proposals. and what is so encouraging about it is it relies on executive action. that is what the president can do on his own, as well as congressional action. the president's proposing, for example, preference for hiring new police with cops grants to work in schools. also strengthening that national database that is so important to criminal background checks. and i'm hopeful that congress will act to extend those background checks, not only to the firearms sales that now fit within the gun show loophole. about 40% of all firearm sales every year, but also to ammunition sales, which are really the black hole of gun violence prevention. there is a historic opportunity here for the congress to act on the president's proposals. and i'm very hopeful that we can act cooperatively. >> the nra's come out with a statement today in which they say a number of things. but
by president obama to take away gun rights will meet strong opposition in congress. it was senator rand paul who went the farthest. >> our founding fathers were very concerned about having a separation of powers, they didn't want to let the president become a king. i'm afraid that president obama may have this king complex sort of developing and we're going to make sure that it doesn't happen. >> i want to bring in the political report for the washington post and editor of citizen jane politics and contribute for to the daily beast. let's start with the campaign push for this because we did see it work to help raise taxes on the rich. what does the president need to do this time around, do you think, patricia? >> i think he really needs to change the dynamic of what senators and congressmen are hearing from their constituents, and we see him doing that. the president knows when we look at national polls, the majority of americans are in favor of stricter gun control, but in states that are dedicated to keeping their majority, colorado, it can really the democrats can really unwilling to tack

not expected to be easy house majority leader senator kerry reid is a gun owner himself. local gun owners and not praising obama's decision will this proposed gun legislation make a difference in our area it all depends on who you ask. at illinois gun works bullets are flying like they do every night at the shooting range and so were gun owners opinions about the president's legislation. in illinois we already go through a lot of background checks, when you fill out the form they ask you if you have any mental issues. we go through a lot of checks already and there is still a three day waiting period. he has six maybe seven guns for sale right now he credits politicians for making sales so brisk. they say the president's proposed legislation squeezes the wrong people and threatens the constitution he also says it makes the price of guns go up and the availability of guns go down. i almost needed a switchboard today there are so many people that are asking us what the laws are why should i do what can and can't i do a law enforcement in chicago feels differently they praised him for acting
america on a better fiscal and economic path. both senators served on president obama's national commission on fiscal responsibility and reform, otherwise known as simpson-bowles. the commission, originally modeled after legislation introduced by the pair, produced a debt reduction plan now hailed as a model of bipartisan compromise on taxes and spending and is the standard against b which all other proposals are measured. now, ladies and gentlemen, please welcome senators kent conrad and judd gregg.

? >> the senator is just wrong. no one is talking bout, including president obama, taking anyone's second amendment rights away. if he had listened to the president's speech, he would know that. there have been no actions by the president that give any validity to that. if the gentleman just want to be opposed for the sake of being opposed and ignore the facts, i generally do not argue with people who engage in that kind of irresponsible behavior. >> there are people out there tried to take a serious look at helping politicians find ways to curb gun violence. one of those people is the former baltimore city mayor. he is looking at the atf, saying they have not demonstrated an ability to control the flow of fire arms in our society. do you think they need to be eliminated or reduced? >> i think what the atf needs is a permanent executive director, as the president mentioned. congress for whatever reason has not confirmed it director of the atfb in 6 years. while the same time, the n.r.a. three members of congress, have saw to de-fund or emasculate the atfb by restricting their operations in such way
, even before the time that president obama initially said he just wanted to start considering what the recommendations might be. by that time, the senate is already due to have started hearings on not just recommendations, but actual legislation that they are putting forward. the political common essence is that speed is of the essence. it has been one month and two days and the sense of urgency that there must be a response to that tragedy. >> in the month since 20 precious children and six brave adults were taken from us, more than 900 of our fellow americans have reportedly died at the end of a gun. 900 in the past month. >> the president speaking today to the urgency of the matter. what the president proposed today ended uptaking washington by surprise. took political observers by surprise. factoring into his proposals that widespread cynicism could do nothing. the president did not do that. the president proposed not the most aggressive gun legislation. but he proposed the most wide-ranging, most holistic, most comprehensive approach to the overall problem of gun violence that

is expected to meet stiff resistance from house republicans and even some senate democrats in states with loose restrictions on firearms. in a statement, the national rifle association vowed to challenge obama with what it called "p5 of the century." and his remarks, obama called on the american people to help him push gun control through congress. >> this will not happen unless the american people demand it. if parents and teachers, police officers and pastors, if hunters and sportsmen, if responsible gun owners, if americans of every background stand up and say enough's, we of suffered too much pain and cared too much about our children to allow this to continue, then change will come. >> in a statement, the nation's leading gun control advocacy group, the british campaign to prevent gun violence, endorsed the plan saying the white house has exhibited "tremendous leadership" in its comprehensive policy recommendations to address gun violence. the american civil liberties union expressed concern about obama's call for more police officers in schools, saying -- you can go to democrac
for a prominent republican responding. if we could, making matters worse is that president obama is, again, abusing his power by imposing his policies viejo executive fiat instead of allowing them to be debated in congress. your reaction to the senator? >> unfortunately not accurate. perfect executive order. the take away will be the executive vice. the president has said that this is an incredibly complex issue of gun violence and we need a broad ranging comprehensive solution. the most comprehensive approach we have had to get control since the 1968 can control act. that is an acknowledgement that we need to bring in all of the various sectors of government and society. gun owners and non gun owners to try and finally once and for all reduce the gun violence in this country. the nation is capable of that. we have every possibility. lou: i think congratulations are in order. i will extend them, though i disagree with the policies signed into law. playing a prominent role in moving that legislation to reality. congratulations in order. >> he was steadfastness, really terrific. lou: and he
